Home Brew Recipes
It’s homebrew time again! This time we tried to see if we could recreate Guinness at home using our Grainfather, and ingredients that we picked up from The Malt Miller. We tried to make Guinness Extra Stout (which I think is the same as Guinness Original) rather than the current Guinness Draught that you may be more used to now using a 40-year-old recipe from Dave Line’s book “Brewing Beers like those you buy”

Shockingly we’re pretty sober on this one. We had only had a bit of Erdinger for breakfast and then went straight into reviewing.

This Guinness Extra Stout clone turned out spot on looks-wise, Identical aroma, but it wasn’t quite there on taste. We will dial back the bitterness on V2. Don’t get me wrong though, it was a fantastic beer!

Drop a subscribe! We normally review about 7 pints a day when we do it so the last ones tend to get a bit messy! New videos twice a week.
